    Plant it where it gets lots of sun. If you live in a cooler climate, make sure it is in hottest sunniest part of the garden. If you are in North Carolina, I believe it should be fine. They are hardy from zone 11 down to parts of zone 7. They take a few years to start producing fruit. Do you know the variety? The most common one is "Wonderful."

    I lost my eight year old "Wonderful" pomegranate tree this year due to a late frost... frustrating. If you get late freezing, plant it close to the house. I live in California for reference.

    A few years ago some one gave me a seedling from their black pomagranite tree. Mine is now about 5 foot tall and maybe 3 years old. You can do cuttings off them to start more trees.
